Donation of $500,000 from Jewelers Mutual puts power of giving in customers’ hands

Policyholder votes will steer company’s philanthropic efforts to benefit Feeding America®, Kids In Need Foundation, and Special Olympics

(NEENAH, Wis.) - Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group unveiled the company’s 2019 charitable effort empowering its policyholders to help decide how to allocate a $500,000 charitable donation to Feeding America, Kids In Need Foundation and Special Olympics.

During 2019, Jewelers Mutual policyholders will be able to vote for one of the three organizations to receive a charitable gift through an online voting platform after they receive or renew their jewelry insurance policy.

The three charities were selected based on policyholder and employee surveys and charity rating data. Each charity will receive a minimum of a $100,000 donation. The remaining $200,000 will be distributed based on the percentage of policyholder votes tallied at the end of 2019.

“Jewelers Mutual is committed to supporting organizations that make a difference in our community and across the nation,” said Scott Murphy, president and CEO at Jewelers Mutual. “We are excited to kick off a new way to give back that includes our policyholders. We care about what matters to them, and I’d like to personally thank our policyholders for contributing by submitting votes to help us help people in need.”

In addition to all monetary donations, Jewelers Mutual will donate its time through volunteer efforts with each nonprofit organization at a local level. The Neenah-based organization’s employees already took part in the 2019 Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Wisconsin and in service work with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, with plans to participate in the Kids In Need Foundation throughout 2019.

In 2020, Jewelers Mutual will again identify charities of choice and empower policyholders to help determine the donation recipients.
